Fine George II Silver Tea Caddy, by Samuel Taylor, having a reverse pear-form body embossed with floral garlands centering a blank cartouche on each side, removable lid with shell-form finial. Marked on underside of base.
Samuel was the son of Thomas Taylor and started his apprenticeship with John Newton in 1737. His first marks was entered in 1744. Like his master, whose business he probably succeeded to, since Newton was finally in Maiden Lane, Taylor was a specialist in tea-caddies and sugar-bowls.
